A lightweight, baby-frame 28g Charles Daly OU?

Baby frame 28g Charles Daly OU shotgun?

A lot of 28-gauge shotguns aren’t what they claim to be. Even though they shoot 28g shells, they’re really 20-gauge guns. That’s because some makers cut corners when they built them.

Instead of scaling down the entire firearm, they just stick a set of 28-gauge on a 20-gauge frame. The OU or SxS you end up with has the feel and heft of 20, but it shoots more expensive 28-gauge shells. What’s the point?

But some makers do make and have made true 28-gauge guns. Typically, these doubles are really expensive. But that’s not the case with this one at Cabelas in Hazelwood, MO — or at least I think it isn’t.

In the ’60s and into the ’70s, the Charles Daly name was used on a series OU shotguns made by Miroku in Japan. These shotguns were model after Browning Citoris. Overall, they were reliable, well-made doubles.

Miroku made two types of 28 gauge OUs: Some on 20-gauge frames, other on scaled down, 28-gauge frames.

I think the gun you see here is one of those lightweight, baby-frame 28s. According to the Blue Book of Gun Values, Daly/Miroku made around 1,000 of the lightweight/baby frame 28 gauges. So if this is one, and judging by the weight the seller has listed it is, it’s a hard-to-find over-under and a good deal.

William Evans .400/.360 Boxlock Side-by-Side Double Rifle
William Evans .400/.360 Boxlock Side-by-Side Double Rifle

William Evans .400/.360 Boxlock Side-by-Side Double Rifle: William Evans [From Purdey’s] 63 Pall Mall, St. James, London boxlock ejector double rifle chambered for the .400/.360 Purdey Nitro Express 2 3/4″ cartridge and London proved for Cordite 40 and a 300-grain bullet. This is the 9.3mm [.367] cartridge which is the best of the .400/.360’s.  Many rechambered to 9.3x74R when brass was unavailable. This one remains in its original chambering.  26″ dovetail lump ejector barrels with very good to excellent bores. Raised matted rib with doll’s head third bite. Three-leaf express rear sight with one standing and two folding leaves. Front sight with fine bead and flip up moonlight sight. Built on the venerable Webley Long Bar Action. Bushed strikers. Bottom tang extended to the steel grip cap. Reciever with 80% coverage fine English scroll engraving. Buttstock with a strong fiddleback figure.  14 5/8″ LOP to a checkered steel buttplate with widow’s peak. Neutral cast. Lever release forend.  Sling eyes fore and aft.  9lb 2oz This piece has every appearance of never having had any restoration. It is tight and on the face with very good to excellent bores. It has been used but not abused. Buttstock and forend solid and without repairs. Barrel blue at 94% with an even patina. Reciever is silver with an even patina. Checkering at 96%  Cased in its original brass cornered canvas trunk case with original trade label.

Parker VH 16 Gauge Side-by-Side SUPER CLEAN, CRISP, UNTOUCHED GUN!
Parker VH 16 Gauge Side-by-Side SUPER CLEAN, CRISP, UNTOUCHED GUN!

Parker VH 16 Gauge Side-by-Side SUPER CLEAN, CRISP, UNTOUCHED GUN!
General Specs: Parker, year 1931, 16 Gauge, 6lbs 6oz, SxS
Serial Number: 234883
I get to see a lot of fine Parker guns in my business, and high-grade guns to boot, but this fine Parker, sn234883 built in 1931, stands out because of its CLEAN, UNMOLESTED condition.  Another nicety is that it is a full 1/4lb. lighter than most 16ga. Parkers built on the #1 frame, weighing just 6lbs. 6oz. and balanced perfectly on the hinge pin.  Look at the wood to metal fit, the checkering, the screws…they are factory original and superb.  All the finishes, including the wood finish, are factory original and untouched.  Virtually 99% factory case color remains on the receiver, bold and vivid (keep in mind the photo flash washes out some of the vividness. The colors show better in person), and 99% factory original blue on the barrels.  There is not one crack or split or repair anywhere in the wood, and the gun measures 14 1/4″ to the factory dogs head butt plate.  The 28″ barrels have no dings or pits, a few light handling marks, mirror perfect bores, unaltered 2 9/16″ chambers, rough barrel weight stamped at 3-5, and crisp clear lettering and rib matting. Even the factory jewelling at the breech face remains evident (see photos). You can look a long time and you will be hard-pressed to find a more genuine and crisp VH 16.  These guns are still a great investment, especially with high condition.  This is clearly an investment quality shotgun that has been carried and therefore can be used and shot with no loss of value.  If you want to see what near new, factory Parker case colors looked like, just check this one out.  They are not subtle, nor “pearlescent”, but bold and strong.  This fine Parker has it all; high factory condition, desirable features, good shooting dimensions, and the factory letter documenting the gun.  NICE!  Thanks for looking. Price: $8,950

William Young, Bury St Edmunds, S’folk. Exceptional 19-bore double barreled flintlock sporting gun, ca. 1815

William Young, Bury St Edmunds, S’folk. Exceptional 19-bore double barreled flintlock sporting gun, ca. 1815: Weight: 5 Lbs. 15 oz.  Superb 30” Damascus barrels retaining much of an original brown finish have excellent bores which appear to be unaltered from their original boring. Stepped-in breeches with platinum touch hole liners retain much of the original hardening color and show little evidence of use. One of the gold breech poincon is a replacement. Extremely fine locks show little use and feather springs retain traces of the original fire blue from being “drawn” after tempering. Stock shows lots of minor handling marks but retains virtually all of the original varnish. Original ramrod. Overall in beautiful , little used, condition retaining a fair amount of original finish throughout and in superb mechanical condition. Extremely fast ignition comparable in lock time to the best British maker’s of the day. This gun (each barrel) will still place 37% of a 1 oz. load of #6 shot on a 22”x 32” sheet of paper at 43 yds. using 2 ¼ drams of Goex fffg powder (1100 ft/sec). Compare that performance with your favorite modern sporting gun ….. you might be surprised at the results! These late British flintlock-era double guns are quite rare in this condition and you would be hard pressed to find a better example. Price: POR

CHARLES DALY EMPIRE GRADE OVER UNDER 12GA28″ Krupp vent rib barrels … 2 3/4″ chambers … choked Full/ExFull … weight 7 lbs 2 oz … LOP 14 3/8″ over leather covered 1″ recoil pad … drop comb 1 1/2″ … drop heel 2 1/2″ … cast off 1/4″ … double, hand checkered, triggers, with front trigger articulated … ejectors … automatic safety. The top of the rib is imprinted “Charles Daly Empire Quality.”

This is an outstanding Prussian Daly from the pre-war era. All of the metal including the trigger guard, operating lever, tang, forend hardware and the grip cap are profusely covered in acanthus leaf scroll engraving. This same scroll surrounds game scenes on the receiver of pointing dogs on the left, a covey of quail on the right and ducks on the bottom. The metal exhibits a mottled tarnished pewter and smokey grey patina which adds to the original deep relief engraving and makes it more appealing now, than decades ago when first created.

Dark, dark Turkish walnut was selected for the pistol grip stock and three piece forearm. Truly outstanding fler-de-lis checkering is generously spread over the grip surfaces. A narrow wedge of horn is inlaid at the tip of the forearm and the gold inset oval in the toeline has yet to be initialed. The barrels retail 95% of their blue, the bores are bright & excellent and the wood has seen exceptional care. This gun may be better now that when it was made. Price: $12,500

Auction alert: A 12g Charles Daly Feather Weight SxS…

Charles Daly German 12 Ga Feather Weight Double-Barrel Shotgun
Charles Daly German 12 Ga Feather Weight Double-Barrel Shotgun

In 1884, Westley Richard invented the Anson & Deeley boxlock. Even though Westley revised their design into the 20 century, many collectors believe the companies who really perfected it were Francotte, and  in Prussia, H.A. Lindner. Most of Lindner’s A&D boxlock shotguns were imported into this country by Charles Daly.

Charles Daly was a businessman. Around 1875 he partnered with August Shoverling to import shotguns into the United States. These side-by-sides were marketed under the Charles Daly name, and early on they were built by serveral different makers.

By the time this gun was built, Daly had established his relationship with Lindner. The Lindner-Daly relationship lasted from the end of the 19th century until around WW1, and produced some of the finest boxlock shotguns ever built.

Charles Daly Model 500 side by side Miroku 20 Gauge shotgun.
Charles Daly Model 500 side by side Miroku 20 Gauge shotgun.

Here’s the perfect double for anyone new to upland hunting — or anyone looking for a deal. This Charles Daly/ Miroku Model 500 20 Gauge is on Gunbroker.com now. It’s a NO RESERVE auction, ending 11/9/2014 3:58:13 PM ET.

The Charles Daly Model 500 is a very basic side-by-side. But basic doesn’t  mean cheap. It just means you’re getting a lot of quality for very little money. Miroku made Charles Daly’s shotguns from 1967 to 1976, and the one you see here cost around $150 in 1968. The Model 500 was made on the classic Anson & Deeley action. It came in 12  & 20 gauge with 26″, 28″, or 30″ bbls (chopperlump bbls, btw). All 20 gauges had 3″ chambers.

The fore stock and butt stock are in overall good shape, they do show normal signs of field use, but the original is in good shape and still in tact. The inside of the barrels is clean and shiny.

Great gun alert: A 12g, Prussian-made Charles Daly O/U…

Charles Daly Prussian O/U 12 Gauge - F.W. Heym
Charles Daly Prussian O/U 12 Gauge – F.W. Heym

Here’s a beautiful, high-quality shotgun you rarely see: It’s a 12 gauge Charles Daly O/U made in Prussia by F. W. Heym. It’s on Gunbroker.com now and the online auctions ends on Sat, 10/18/2014, @ 12:46:55 AM ET.

Charles Daly was an importer, not a maker, and his company had doubles built in Europe for the American market. Charles Daly side-by-sides are famous for their high quality, and this O/U looks like it’s just as well made. It’s a boxlock with sideplates. It was built in the 1920s, right when Charles Daly first offered O/Us. In its day, it was a very expensive shotgun — $500. At the same time, you could buy a Charles Daly Diamond Quality side-by-side  for $450, an A.H. Fox DE for $256.60, and Parker CHE for around $220.

Charles Daly Prussian O/U 12 Gauge – F.W. Heym: This Charles Daly Prussian O/U 12 Gauge has been owned by the same family since its original purchase and is in very good condition. The pictures speak for themselves and I will answer any questions to the best of my ability. The length of pull is 14.5″ from front trigger to end of recoil pad, and 13.5″ from the rear trigger to end of recoil pad. (Correction) Barrels are 28″. Weight is 7 lbs. (Analog scale so this isn’t exact). Gun features shell extractors and safety lever. Choke is tapered, with bore diameter at muzzle being 18mm (perhaps just a hair under).

Nice looking SxS: A Charles Daly Prussian Sauer SxS 16 Gauge…

Charles Daly Prussian Sauer SxS 16 Gauge, 26″ Barrels

Here’s another nice grouse gun. This little Charles Daly is on Gunbroker.com now, and the listing ends 11/27/2013 @ 9:48:25 AM ET. Made during World War 1, it looks like it’s still in excellent original condition.

Regarding Charles Daly, he was a businessman, not a gunmaker. Around 1875 he partnered with August Shoverling and started importing shotguns into the United States from Prussia/Germany. The side-by-sides they brought in were marketed under the Charles Daly name, and up to about WW2 they were some of the finest double-barrel shotguns offered in the US.

Charles Daly Prussian Sauer SxS 16 Gauge, 26″ Barrels: It is an Anson & Deeley boxlock in 16 gauge and is marked “Charles Daly” on both sides of the receiver, “Made in Prussia” on the watertables, “Prussia” on the barrel flats, “J. P. Sauer & Sohn, Suhl” on the top of both barrels and “Fluid Steel Krupp Essen” on the top barrel rib. The beauty of this piece is in its workmanship and condition. Adorned with just a bit of scroll and line engraving on the receiver, the gun is in 98% – almost mint – condition. It looks almost unused, amazing for a piece nearly 100 years old! The 26 inch Krupp steel barrels retain about 99% of their original blue with just one little scratch on the surface of the left tube. They chime like bells when dinged with your fingernail. The top rib has a doll’s head extension that locks into the top of the receiver for extra strength. The extension itself is carved to look like a scallop shell. The chamber lengths are 2 ½ inches.

The barrels are choked improved cylinder and cylinder, perfect for upland game and the bores are perfect. Extractors, not ejectors. The receiver and triggerguard are case-hardened. The colors have pretty much faded now but if you look closely you will still see quite a lot of subtle colors plus some areas that are quite vivid. There is a bit of subtle scroll and line engraving. The screws have never been turned and amazingly every screw on the sides of the receiver is held in place by a tiny set screw. True Prussian quality. The wood is very nicely grained walnut with just a few extremely light dings from careful hunting use. About all of the original varnish remains and I would rate the wood at 98%. Finely checkered round knob wrist and forend with no damaged diamonds. There is an un-engraved initial oval inlaid into the stock about 3 inches in front of the heel. The butt is finished with a horn buttplate held in place with engraved screws. Length of pull is 14 inches. Drop at comb is 1 ½ inches. Drop at heel is 2 5/8 inches. Weight is 6 pounds 5 ounces. The gun comes with its original leg-o-mutton case in excellent condition including the case’s original key.
